I'm a software engineer with solid background in technologies such as C, C++, Java, JavaScript, PHP, MongoDB and MySQL (for different platforms with different frameworks, libraries and tools). Self-motivated hard worker and strong decision maker. I never say that something is impossible. I do any software you can pay for.


Currently I'm in St. Petersburg/Leningrad region, Russian Federation. In general I look for long-term cooperation with solid customers who need deep expertise in software design/engineering/testing. I work distantly (teleworking only!) from Russia as a remote contractor therefore I don't need any visas or working permits because I'm not going to move to the client's location so I'm eligible to work as a contractor for customers from Canada, EU, UK and US. Short business trips are possible. Practically, my Schengen visa is always valid therefore it's not a problem to meet in Europe/Asia.


I graduated from St. Petersburg State University. M.S. in Applied Mathematics. I worked in Sun Microsystems (nowadays Oracle) and was engaged in development of the compiler of C programming language which was a part of a tool kit for software development called Sun Studio (nowadays Oracle Solaris Studio).

Afterwards I was a hacker and I did "one of the world's most prolific spambots" "known outside Russia as Festi and inside the country as Topol-Mailer, named after an intercontinental ballistic missile, the Topol-M. It was powerful enough to generate, at times, up to a third of all spam e-mail messages circulating globally" according to the article in The New York Times newspaper.


For years I deliver an excellent service based on an open dialogue with clients for my individual and corporate customers. I have a vast expertise in

My email is iartimovich82@gmail.com. I'm always ready to discuss your project in Russian or English languages (you may use other ones, of course, but I'm afraid that using of Google Translate is an excellent way to misunderstanding).
